I had relatives flying out of SeaTac and used the Marina Inn as a base camp to explore Seattle for a couple days before they left. We stayed two nights but didn't spend much time in the room. We left the room early the first day and returned late after sightseeing in downtown Seattle. The room had not been cleaned... More

Our room was big, clean and quiet. It didn't smell of cigarette smoke. The wifi was strong. The man at the front desk was helpful. We spent a little bit more (~$10/night) for this hotel rather than any of the hotels near the airport, but it was money well spent. The drive was in the opposite way of downtown Seattle,... More

Upon check in no one was @ the front desk, they have a sign asking you to use the house phone.to get service, Turned out the desk woman was driving the van to the airport and told me via cell...

An older establishment located 15 minutes from airport. The day of our arrival the shuttle (not free) broke down, and I was forced to take a taxi for more money than I would have paid with their shuttle. (pretty annoyed that they charge $25 round-trip for their shuttle, when all the other motels have complimentary shuttle service) Only stayed for... More

Near the airport. Quiet and inexpensive. Mixed residential setting. Not a modern place, but the rooms were large and clean, the wifi worked well. The marina is less than a 10 min walk and there are a few good restaurants within very easy walking distance. Very quiet. I thought the staff (older gentleman whom I presume is owner or manager)...

There is no view of the bay on the street level as advertised. The girl that works the front desk during the daytime has a real customer problem she does not want to please or take care of the customer all she cares about is the computer she is playing with. As far as the room it was clean and... More

This isn't a fancy place, but it is nice, clean, quiet, convenient with nice restaurants within one block and the Puget Sound right down the street. Within 20 minutes of Seattle - Tacoma Airport. I gave it an excellent based on the value and being perfect for a good place to sleep before an early flight.

My wife and myself stayed here for two nights. Spent a day sightseeing in Seattle. We drove to the Light Rail station and rode into Seattle. When we finished we returned the same the same way. In a matter of minutes we went from an urban area to a peaceful, quite area. The carpeting in our room was new, the... More

I stayed at the Marina Inn for a week during a trip in November. As a solo female traveler I was a bit worried after reading some of the other reviews, but I found my stay very pleasurable. Yes, the hotel is outdated, but the room and bathroom was clean. I requested a room on the second floor and the... More
